We are delighted to be offering an opportunity for young people aged 7 to 13
to take part in our Lost Words creative workshops at Bradlaugh Fields on
Wednesday October 30th.
The Lost Words, a book of creative writing and artwork designed specifically for
young people, is inspired by nature. More precisely it was a response to certain
“natural” words being taken out of the Oxford English Children’s Dictionary to be
replaced by more “digital” language. The wheel certainly keeps turning and you
cannot stop technological progress. But The Lost Words asks us to question which
parts of our past we really want to let go of. And at what expense?
Hopefully our creative workshops will go some way to planting seeds in the minds of
the next generation, a generation that seems more switched on than any previous
one as concerns the future of our planet. Bradlaugh Fields Barn provides a beautiful,
outdoor setting to explore the natural world both literally and creatively, to take part
in some creative activities and to have some fun.
We hope that lots of young people will spend a few hours of their half-term week with
us. I am sure we shall all learn something too!
